Forum Rules

CHANGES
  • Items changed, or highlighted for future attention, on 20 July 2013 are highlighted in yellow.
Global Rules
  • Forum moderators may or may not be Tripwire Interactive staff members, but either way, please respect them, as they are the authority of the forums. Speaking to them with intentional spite will not be tolerated and may result in the loss of your forum privileges.
  • Any decisions made by any member of staff or moderator are final and not subject to discussion. Doing so may result in a ban from the site. The owners of Tripwire Interactive Forums reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason, as well as to remove access to the forums for any individuals with or without warning for breaches of the rules.
  • If you have a complaint regarding another user, PM the appropriate moderators, or if you have an administrative issue, [RO]schneidzekk.
General Behaviour
  • Use the search function before posting. Chances are your question has already been answered.
  • Use a title that describes the content of your post. Don't use all caps or special characters to draw attention either in the title or the body of the post.
  • Up to 10 emoticons are allowed in a post
  • Political discussions are prohibited.
  • Flaming - We do not tolerate abusive, malicious, personal attacks. You will be banned if you persist in this behavior.
  • Trolls - Anyone deliberately antagonizing other forum users by posting 'flame bait' type messages is not welcome. You will be banned (possibly without warning depending on the severity of the issue) if you persist in this behavior.
  • Personal insults (directed at anyone) will result in a ban. If the behavior is not corrected, it will be made more permanent.
  • Constructive criticism is welcome. However keep in mind we (and other forums goers) may not agree with you. If you can't keep the conversation civil, you will be removed from the forums.
  • The use of hyperbole, one liners, and images as part of a forum debate is likely to get you infracted. You have many ways to participate and be a constructive part of this community, even when you disagree.
  • To make the highlighted bits above 100% clear to everyone, the following WILL NOT BE TOLERATED:
    1. Personal attacks, insults, antagonism of any forum-goers, moderators or Tripwire Interactive staff.
    2. Breaches of confidentiality and privacy of any sort.
    3. Any form of racism, bigotry or attacks on race, creed or color.
    4. Linking to posts on other forums related to ANY of the above, whether you are the originator or not, without exception.
  • There has been too much in the way of abhorrent personal behaviors in the past. These will cease. It doesn't matter who started it or who reacted to it - it will all result in moderator action. If you have to indulge your hatreds, for whatever reason, go do it elsewhere - and do not try and drag our forum-goers over to enjoy your hatreds.
  • We understand that people have strong feelings about our games, what we do for a living and how we respond (or don't) to comments on the forums. We all aren't going to agree about everything. So, BE CIVIL in your disagreements!
DO NOTs
  • DO NOT Transmit any message, information, data, text, software or graphic files, or other materials ("Content") that is unlawful (including illegal drug usage), harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, hateful or racially, ethnically, sexually or otherwise objectionable. This includes publicizing private information, such as individual's real names, IP addresses and anything else that might be used to identify them to the freakier members of the internet. This also means you may NOT publically share private communications (PM, email or anything else) without the original poster's permission.
  • DO NOT Post or transmit any Content that contains a virus, Trojan horse or other mischievous Content.
  • DO NOT Post or transmit any unsolicited advertising, promotional materials, "junk mail", "spam", "chain letters", "pyramid schemes" or any other form of solicitation.
  • DO NOT link to posts on any other forums, or any other form of media, that breaches our rules. It will be treated just the same as if you had posted it here.
  • DO NOT Double Post, cross Post or restart closed threads.
  • DO NOT Intentionally or unintentionally violate any applicable local, state, national or international law, rule or regulation.
  • DO NOT Upload or transmit any Content that infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights ("Rights") of any party.
  • DO NOT post cheats or exploits; THIS INCLUDES ALL/ANY REFERENCES TO HACKING, PIRATED SOFTWARE etc.
  • DO NOT complain about being banned from a server and DO NOT complain about other players on servers - that is between you and the admin, no need to get the community involved.
Username, Avatar and Signature Rules
  • Multiple registrations result in a ban.
  • No offensive user names
  • Avatars:
    Avatars are disabled.
  • All signatures should not exceed the following size limits, you can have both text and images
  • - For text signatures: 4 lines normal size, 8 lines small size and up to 100 chars per line. Font sizes above 2 are not allowed. (Blank lines count as lines.)
  • - For images in signatures: 1 image up to 400 pixels wide, 150 pixels tall and 100kb in size plus 2 lines normal size text and up to 100 chars per line
Netiquette: Written text has no inflection, and, as such, you should be careful how you write your messages as interpretation will vary from person to person. Please take advantage of the built-in emoticons to add such expression to your words. Please remember the golden rule: to treat other forum users the way you would like to be treated. Please use common courtesy, and enjoy using Red Orchestra's forums
Offensive material
The following is a list of some things that MAY be considered "offensive" by the moderators and the team. This is NOT an exclusive list and it does depend very much on context.

Crossing the line into "offensive" territory is likely to get you asked to change your name, sig or avatar or to withdraw/delete posts. This will be done politely by the moderators. If you refuse to comply further action WILL be taken once started, ultimately leading to banning from the forums.

A key point: please attempt to use your brains. What is mild humour to you may well be deeply offensive to others. While we have no intention of acting as politically-correct "thought police", we are on the lookout for those things that can cause offense and, in some cases, are actually still illegal in some jurisdictions.
  1. Names recalling notorious war criminals or personalities.
  2. Names recalling atrocities and war crimes in general, or units with particularly odious histories.
  3. Use of obscenities and expletives.
  4. Blatant racism, mysogynism or many other "ism"s.
  5. Use of symbolism and regalia recalling Nazism or Fascism; this does not include pics of soldiers who happen to have such symbols on their uniform, unless we feel this has been done to provoke. Please note that many Nazi symbols (including the Swastika) are still illegal in Germany and other countries and considered deeply offensive by many Europeans.
  6. Use of symbolism and regalia recalling Stalinism.
  7. On both the previous two, the moderators' views on the intention and impact of use of such symbols will be final - not yours. Please be understanding if you are advised to change something.
  8. In general, if a sig/avatar represents your allegiances in-game and is clearly "in part", it is likely to be fine; if the moderators feel you are trying to demonstrate unpalatable political allegiances, or to use it in an attempt to ridicule or provoke others you WILL be asked to change it. RO is NOT the place to make any extremist political statements of any kind.
Examples:
So people get the idea, some examples that would be considered offensive, numbered as above:
  1. "Hitler", "Beria"
  2. "NKVD Blocking Detachment", "Einsatzgruppen"
  3. This one should be pretty obvious...
  4. So should this - and it includes calling all Germans "Nazis" and all Soviets/Russians "Commies". It got boring 50 years ago, so stop it.
  5. Use of swastikas, fasces, SS-runes and so on for the Axis.
  6. There is actually very little overt symbolism from the Stalinist era; the hammer-and-sickle isn't offensive per se.
A simple rule-of-thumb: many Europeans find Nazi symbolism of any sort offensive; many Americans still find Soviet symbolism offensive. Engage your brain before using.




Final Note: this is NOT open to debate, so please do NOT start whining and moaning if a moderator asks you to change something. They will advise at first, giving reasons, then, if you take no notice, they will step up the pressure through to banning.

  • [RO2] Single Player - I HATE this mission.

    This is about single player.

    Russian Campaing.
    First Chapter
    Third Mission (Russians defending Train Station).
    I.HATE.THIS.MISSION!

    Germans keep coming. There are almost no pauses. Their spawn rate is SICK.
    My team (bots) on the other hand is STUPID. They are slow and don't respond to orders - sometimes I have impression that they don't follow orders and they don't defend any of the checkpoints.

    I tried playing it tactically (issuing orders like crazy). I tried shooting all Germans by myself (COD style). I tried to mix both. NOPE. I fail. I get outnumbered in a moment.

    On top of it on last checkpoint my teammates just stay on spawnpoint no matter how many commands I issue.

    I play this on normal difficulty (jeeez and there are 2 more!) and I have already tried 20 times. Man, this mission pisses me off unbelievably. It's infuriating.

    I'm just an average player. What am I doing wrong?

    I don't remember specific SP missions, but most of the times it was kind of rambo. I remember having the same feeling as you.

      your guys are going to get ground down as fast as the enemy team because of bot accuracy. failing that, you can always try working out the predictable bot paths and gunning down hordes of them at a time with an s/mg. Still, those missions were always silly when they reset the clock each time you nearly won

        I beat the campaign by ambushing the idiot bots with smgs. I know its not the right way to play the game but that's how I beat it. This doesn't always work in multiplayer though.

          When in doubt.. run 'n gun. The game was designed with this in mind. It works especially well agains the bots.

            in the defence missions contimnually command your troops to "defend objective"

            The defence missions are the hardest because it relys on the AI keeping the guys in the cap, which dosnt work well. So remind the AI to Defend Objective alot.

            Ive said defend objective only to see a soldier outside of the cap defending, press defend cap again... runs into building. Found it very hard on commisars house.

            Worst part is, i completed it all on highest difficulty 2 times to get the acheivments.

            Didnt get them. Really suxs, and TWI have to fix this.

            To compound it, the single player is now seperate from the rest of the game so it is impossible to get them.

            Im really pissed about it, and TWI have not done a thing about, nor looks like the ever will. really disappointing.

              TY all.

              Thanks all for help.
              So it looks like the game is being cheap to players at times.
              It's gonna be really annoying to finish those maps.

                It it used to work perfectly, but since the RS release this tactic is a hit and miss, but get inside the objective near where the enemy enters and order the bots to either:

                "Follow Me" - which used to always get bots unstuck from objects, use you as a waypoint and surround you inside the objective, providing cap power, fire power and meat shields from enemy bullets.

                Or

                Use the Command Widget thing (silver arrow thing) point to a specific spot inside the objective and order them to "Move Here" .... Works similar to the "Follow Me" command but allows you to focus them more specifically to certain areas, or to stay put while you go do something else.

                But since the release of RS, it seems like the majority of bots just don't follow any commands you give them. Once upon a time I could remember saying follow me and by the time I stopped and took cover, I'd have a swarm of bots around me working as a team, but now I'm lucky if I turn around and see one bot near me, while the rest just run around in circles, or lock into trenches and holes, or continually climb up and down on an object or simply just go off to do whatever.

                These above commands were great for arty too as you could keep all the bots in a safe location while you dropped a strike.... Now regardless of what you say you still get several bots running into the explosions and you getting TK's.

                Even with few human players online I could at least play SP, offline matches or on a low populated server with bots, but since the RS release, they have become worse than ever before and completely ruin whatever was left for gameplay as you can't effectively take objectives, you can't properly defend objectives and you can't even use strikes effectively due to them running off into the strikes and getting killed.

                So for me, SP is unplayable, Offline Workshop matches are unplayable, low populated servers are unplayable and heavily populated servers with real people either have high pings or a game mode I don't like..... Or play workshop maps i don't have..... Or Rising Storm which i still don't like.

                So I just sit back and play something else instead while popping in here every few days to see if anything new comes along.

                TL;DR

                Try the Follow Me and Move Here commands.... They might work for some still, but i doubt it.
